It's been a long process, but the Moree Boars are hoping to state government funding that would bring their new clubhouse one step closer to reality.

There are a total of 42 projects in the running for funding, including 12 from the Moree Plains Shire, but Moree Boars president Todd Mitchell is hoping the club can secure their request so the project can finally start to move forward.

"This has been going on for about six years," Mitchell said.

"We've been trying to get some grants but keep coming up empty.

"We've put it on our website and Facebook page, asking people to vote.

"Preferably if they can vote for our project, but more so Moree projects. We'd like to think they've vote for ours."

If successful, Mitchell said the funding won't quite be enough to finish the project, but it should be enough to get a concrete slab down and the building up.

"We'll probably need another $200,000 to finish but it will certainly put a big hole in it," he said.
